A GOP tsunami swept the country, no doubt about it. We were "shellacked," President Obama admits.
What was the one shining place where DEMs held the fort? The Senate.
Who is the most to blame for the Republicans' failure to take over the Senate? Their Senate leader, Mitch McConnell. Only the most incompetent, stumbling, bumbling "potatoe" would fail to capitalize on that rare moment for the GOP. Heads must roll.
Just as Speaker Nancy Pelosi accepts her responsibility, fairly or not, for what happened in the elections and will step aside, Mitch McConnell, should he have any honor and integrity, would do the same.
Rand Paul has earned the right to be the leader of the minority caucus in the Senate. That assessment is based upon merit alone. Rand Paul stands for that group more than any other person. McConnell does not.
McConnell is yesterday; Rand Paul is today. McConnell equals failure; Rand Paul promises success.
I don't like Rand Paul and consider him a symptom of American dysfunction and decay, but he is the man of the moment, so he should hold the torch.
